Access Drugs and Lactation Database (LactMed) with Your Mobile Device!

Posted by on June 22nd, 2011 Posted in: Consumer Health, Environmental Health and Toxicology, Mobile Devices, NLM Resources


LactMed @ NIHNeed to know more about drugs and breastfeeding? LactMed, part of the National Library of Medicine’s Toxicology Data Network (TOXNET), is a database of drugs and other chemicals to which breastfeeding mothers may be exposed. It includes information on the levels of such substances in breast milk and infant blood, and the possible adverse effects in the nursing infant. Suggested therapeutic alternatives are provided to those drugs where appropriate. All data are derived from the scientific literature and fully referenced. Data are organized into substance-specific records, which provide a summary of the pertinent reported information.

LactMed is available online at https://toxnet.nlm.nih.gov/newtoxnet/lactmed.htm and is now available on your mobile device! The free LactMed App for iPhone/iPod Touch and Android can be downloaded at http://toxnet.nlm.nih.gov/help/lactmedapp.htm.
